  • You might want to buy a set of LEGO Mindsorms and write a CUPS driver for that.

    There is also LEGO::RCX on CPAN.

    Seriously, chocolate printing is wicked cool.
    • We've already bought 1 set of Lego Mindstorms, but James has requisitioned all the motors and sensors for his stuff. So we're wondering if you can buy more motors and sensors without all the rest. Or whether Lego have twigged that the best thing to do is get people to pay for a whole second set. Annoyingly the Midstorms set (and the other recent technical Lego set we bought) is sorely lacking in the basic Lego parts, and old fashioned technical beams. In place it has all there new-fangled bars with holes in

      • In place it has all there new-fangled bars with holes in, some bent, which are much harder to use to make regular things. Or maybe we're just old dogs who can't grasp new tricks, and our minds are unable to shake off the training of the original technical Lego, and children younger than us would have no problem.

        Having a lot of Lego and two kids who play a lot with it, I can assure you that they also prefer the old-style lego blocks. (see here [] and here [])

        • Most interesting. IIRC you (well they) had both the official castle lego (with the large wall slabs) and the pirate lego. But the castle and the ship there are built with the regular blocks. Mmm, and it looks like duplo for castle walls, which actually seems like most appropriate choice - with walls that thick besieging Lego armies are going to have a tough time breaking through.
